Berlin,
Believe me, I have been thinking about warmer temps for a month. :D One more week and we're on our way.
It was forecast to go down to 2F last night, but only made it to 10F. Warming and melting coming up this week. :{_}:

For once it missed me, it snowed a lot just 10 miles down the road and I never even got a snow flake! :D

4" in Stafford Springs.
Just enough to make it worth taking the Cub out.

In my part of Virginia we've had anywhere from a foot to two feet. I've been working in it since it hit, and I'm headed back out tonight to keep working in it. For anyone who is having to work in this stuff, please be careful. And, thanks to everyone who is fighting through this stuff. Be safe!

We received about 6'' here in Rhode Island.Don't seem to get a lot these days, so I don't have the plow on. Another 4 weeks , and it's just about over with chance of heavy snow.Not hurting my feelings! Implement change can be a pain.

Life, this winter, has been really tough in central Missouri. 55 degrees today. A bit of snow left in ditches.

Life is so tough that I could have a heart attack watching the wife sweeping one or two inches of light snow off the side walk. Probably not since wife and I spend 40 minutes a day at the gym just to keep me in shape for shoveling snow.
I have an excuse. CRS.

We got close to that amount here in the Poconos, the cub was doing great until it died. Had to call in a snow plower to plow the rest of the driveway so my wife could get to work today, hated to spend money we really do not have :(

I feel for you all. Here in Spokane the snow from our last storm just before Christmas is pretty much melted. Temps have been in the mid 30s. Isn't over yet of course, we need the moisture and our mountains are getting it. My snow plow and chains are on a covered pallet in the back and "Marie" is slowly getting close to re-assembly.

I'm so glad we missed this one. Not even a flurry here in Altamont, NY. Hope everyone that was in it faired well.

I was half-ready, but not concerned..... just under a foot here. I left the fast hitch Mott on the Lo Boy, but did not put the chains on. Sorta got a little stuck once with no room to back up.

By the looks of things I wasn't the only one to not have chains. I am lucky as it's pretty flat here.

I put the 'spiked' chains on the loader Cub up north and made a mess (as reports tell me) the other week. It rained 2" or more the next day! I knew I should have put the giant bucket on that loader.
